This morning, the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office was called to a two vehicle crash on the Route 1 in Amity.

Upon arrival, authorities determined that 56 year old Donald Lloyd of Topsfield was traveling Route 1 in a tractor trailer truck when he noticed a pickup truck in the roadway.

Police say the pickup truck, operated by 60 year old Joseph Petroski, was plowing snow across Route 1 from his residence and did not see the tractor trailer coming due to a curve in the roadway.

According to police, Lloyd attempted to stop and was able to avoid crashing into Petroski, however, his efforts caused the tractor trailer to jackknife across Route 1 causing damage to the passenger side tractor trailer and the trailer box.

Both operators were wearing their seat belts and no one was injured in the crash.

The tractor trailer was towed due to disabling damage. Petroski’s vehicle sustained no damages.
